Key Skincare Concept for ✨ᴀᴄɴᴇ✨:

🤔 Know that you should clear your acne before pursuing any other skincare goals (hydration, brightening, rejuvenation) because ongoing pimples will prevent you from achieving those goals 🤔

.

#1 GENTLE CLEANSER

✨ To fight your acne without damaging your skin barrier

.

#2: NON-GREASY MOISTURIZER

✨ To protect your skin barrier and help you tolerate anti-acne ingredients that work (but are usually irritating)

.

#3: BREAKOUT-FREE SUNSCREEN

✨ SPF30+ helps prevent worsening post-acne discolouration, but make sure you choose one that doesn't trigger breakouts!

Check out: EltaMD UV Clear Tinted or Non-Tinted

.

#4: PRESCRIPTION ACNE TREATMENT

✨ These have much more power to clear your acne. See a Dermatologist in less than one week on dermcafe.ca! Book now

Key anti-acne ingredients to look for when choosing a product:

👍 Benzoyl peroxide: book a virtual Dermatologist visit for a potential prescription treatment with benzoyl peroxide

👍 Salicylic acid: Find this in Silymarin CF, Blemish & Age Defense and Silymarin CF

👍 Alpha hydroxy acids: lactic, mandelic, glycolic: Find these in Blemish & Age Defense

👍 Sulfur 3-5%

👍 Niacinamide: Find this in EltaMD UV Clear Tinted or Non-Tinted

👍 Milk thistle: Find this in Silymarin CF

👍 Azeleic acid: Find this in Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment
